F1 - Hamilton says tyres costing him 2013 title tilt
"So many elements come into motor racing"

9 July 2013 - 09h55, by GMM
Lewis Hamilton says Pirelli’s tyres are ruining his shot at the 2013 title.

"I’m not really thinking about the championship now," said the Nurburgring pole sitter. "There’s really no point."

Earlier, having seen his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg win two of the past three grands prix, the Briton sounded optimistic he could chase down Sebastian Vettel’s points lead after dominating qualifying on Saturday.

But then came Sunday, where it became clear the move from steel to kevlar-belted tyres, and the clampdown on team tyre-trickery, had hurt Mercedes considerably.

Hamilton said the 2013 tyre situation is one of the things separating him from another prominent British sports star, Andy Murray, who has finally broken though to win Wimbledon.

"It is just him and the racket," said the 2008 world champion.

"So many elements come into motor racing. There is the electronics performing, the suspension, the frickin’ tyres, things that are out of my control," added Hamilton.

Now Pirelli is making yet another change for Hungary — a new tyre combining the 2012 construction with the 2013 compounds.

"We just have to hope and pray that they work on our car," Hamilton is quoted by the German news agency DPA.

He is not confident.

"It would be good to get a win at some stage but at the moment it really doesn’t feel like it’s going to happen," said the 28-year-old.

But Hamilton said Fernando Alonso, despite a car development dip for Ferrari, should be more confident.

Asked if the title hunt is effectively over for all of Vettel’s 2013 rivals, he insisted: "Definitely not for Fernando. Fernando’s definitely within shooting range."

Sorry Lewis - it's not the tires , it's your car. Just like last year and the year before that Mercedes was the roughest on tires.

Alonso  

“Right now we are fighting against Sebastian. I said in the second half of the year (2012) that I was not any more fighting against Sebastian or Mark (Webber), but against an aeroplane -- so strong was the Red Bull.”

Somehow I think Seb will win again with an even bigger margin ........


Hamilton:

“I don’t understand why we struggle so much on them. It’s a shame because the team are working so hard.
“Clearly we’ve got a good car but for some reason it just doesn’t work on these tyres. The car is a disaster on heavy fuel loads."

  I don't understand why the big drama with his situation >  It's been the same scenario for the last three years .... Merc obviously is not getting the job done.   Aggressive set up?  Fundamentally design flaw >   I only have a hard time to believe a team with resources has the same problem _> Year after year. It's absolutely useless to be fastest over 1 lap in today's f1 ...

F1 - Sergey Sirtokin joins Sauber as team strengthens Russian links

Sauber secures long-term future?

15 July 2013 - 10h10, by Olivier Ferret


Sauber announced a partnership between the Investment Cooperation International Fund, the State Fund of Development of North-West Russian Federation and the National Institute of Aviation Technologies with Sauber Motorsport AG, incorporating the promotion of the sport Formula 1 in Russia and jointly developing high-technological solutions. With the National Institute of Aviation Technologies, one of the leading scientific research institutions in Russia, the Sauber F1 team will benefit from the advanced know-how of the front-end Russian scientists and engineers.

The objective of the partnership is to open up new perspectives and revenue streams by commercialising jointly developed technologies.

The partnership includes further activities for the promotion of the inaugural Formula 1 Grand Prix in Sochi in 2014 and attracting the talented young Russian generation towards motorsport.

In particular, a development programme will be set up for the Russian driver Sergey Sirotkin to prepare him as a racing driver for the team in 2014.

This extensive co-operation will showcase Russian innovation at the pinnacle of motorsport. At the same time, the Sauber F1 Team will have a solid foundation to increase its competitiveness on a long-term basis.

Details of the cooperation will be communicated at a later stage.

Here is hope that this means that Sauber is rescued.

Regarding Sirotkin, he has shown some talent but a racing debut in 2014 would most certainly come to early for him. Hopefully, they have some patience with him before they throw him into F1.

Either way I don't see Gutierrez hanging around for very long. Petrov is still sniffing around too.

No one could say who would win that. But I would say that if any driver gets a bit under the pressure and unhappy at the rivalry I doubt it would be Kimi.

Even though Petrov is also Russian, he is associated with a rival influence group. Therefore, this is not as likely as it looks at first sight. Some obstacles would have to be overcome, not impossible, but also not likely - and rather political. Michail Aleshin (ex FR 3.5 champ), however, would be with right backing group.
